Today, we are excited to announce Quick Boot for the Android Emulator. With Quick Boot, you can launch the Android Emulator in under 6 seconds. Quick Boot works by snapshotting an emulator session so you can reload in seconds. Quick Boot was first released with Android Studio 3.0 in the canary update channel and we are excited to release the feature as a stable update today.

There's a quite a few other improvements and new features, as well.

I have always hated using the emulator. Would try and find even the crappiest phone to test on to avoid it.

I guess the non-quick-boot version of it can be called 'slow as fk boot'?
